Try Indo-western look:

Go for a heavily embellished blouse or a crop top with a plain skirt. You can even utilize the two pieces separately on two different occasions. The lightweight skirts are so easy to walk, not causing any strain on your back and shoulders! The mermaid cut skirt looks elegant or you can even try the A-line ones, which look traditional and gorgeous.
Styling is the key:

Try to keep things subtle and elegant, by choosing the right jewellery pieces that will enhance your look.
Some of us are very comfortable with heels, while some of us just prefer flats. If you are the second one, comfortable wearing your flats, we suggest you try and go for kitten heels or short block heels. They will not only make you comfortable, but the fall of the ghaghra or the skirt or saree on the heel will be perfect. And those who love their stilettos, go ahead girls with confidence!
